Making sure MS Access scrolls properly in subforms/controls

P: n/a
Dear forum,

In my database, I have one instance where a specific collection of 7
forms are expected all at one time, so I tried to build an entry screen
where the entry form for each individual form is present as a subform
in a tabcontrol in one main form, to make it easier for my unit's Data
Entry Officers. Unfortunately, there seems to be a problem with
scrolling that I have been resolve, probably caused either by the
tabcontrol or the subforms, since it does not occur when the form which
was used as a basis for the subform is opened individually. This
problem is that where the individual subform is longer than the screen
allows, the page does not scroll down when fields below the screen are
selected (so that when the field at the bottom of the screen is exited
by pressing tab, or enter, or by an autotab or skip, the next field is
selected without the screen scrolling down). Does anyone know how to
fix this?

Best regards,

Patrick

Not to worry - have sidestepped the issue by breaking up the content of
the subforms among further tab controls (which now means that I have
tab controls in subforms in a further tab control ... sigh).
